hillary clinton in the hospital this new year's eve. our dr. gupta tells us just how serious this condition could be. we want to welcome viewers from the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're now less than eight hours away from what could be a dire moment for the united states economy, if president obama and the congress can't agree on a deal to keep the country from plunging over that fiscal cliff. here's what both sides are considering in a potential deal right now. an increase in tax rates for families making over $450,000 a year. extending unemployment benefits. and an increase in the estate tax. the president seemed hopeful but cautious when he addressed the american people earlier today. >> today, it appears that an agreement to prevent this new year's tax hike is within sight. but it's not done. there are still issues left to resolve. but we're hopeful that congress can get it done. but it's not done. >> let's get straight to our chief white house correspondent jessi jessica yellin. she's over at the white house
ordered japanese. clinton is a bad name. and in his second term with the unpleasant nests remember when hillary clinton said to take a lead she would appear on the today program and clinton would not work so i was forced to use the native name. the name of origen. or the slave name. it was up to hillary rodham to prove that his house is not sodom. [laughter] but obama of the jokes of his name it was a good name to rhyme but unfortunately i use them with osama bin london clap your mom up. so i get worried when they talk about presidential candidates i did a similar book in 2008 called deciding fennecs to decider was a long epic:interrupted by other poems. this is the same sort but it has a little bit of prose one was entitled gingrich aware that her husband has cheated on and left seriously ill wives desperately tries to make light of a bad cough.

national convention, former president bill clinton brought the house down. this was one of the greatest speeches ever, i think. let's listen to big bill at his best. >> are we better off than we were when he took office? listen to this. when president barack obama took office, the economy was in free fall, it had just shrunk to 9% gdp. we were losing 750,000 jobs are month. are we doing better than that today? the answer is yes. >> the whole dynamism. >> earlier this year, i wrote oh, who needs conventions. what are they for, anyway? they're for moments like that. i was on the floor for that moment. and it was one of the most memorable things i've seen live in a hall or anywhere. that was bill clinton at the summation of his career. that was everything he had learned about showmanship, about telling a story. and about how to make a case for the president. he made it so sitly, so clearly, so logically. you wonder why barack obama couldn't do it. and that's probably because the kind of case he had to make, somebody other than the president had to make. if the president himself says, you k
to secretary of state hillary clinton and, of course, wishing her a speedy recovery, what is the harm in waiting for the secretary of state to be fully recovered to get the testimony? there has been so much talk about her benghazi testimony and if that the happen and it has been this long, it is such a tragedy, why is it not, why not wait for the secretary of state's testimony as long as it should take. >> the secretary could have testified long before this but now that she is physically impaired, i would think they wouldn't want anything to happen until she is recovered and she is in a position to testify where there would be no doubt as to her lack of impairment to testify. >> we are getting a report she is doing well and we will have more on that here in a moment. at what point, how do you see this wrapping up? will the average pay the rice? >> the state department will be found most accountable. four people have been disciplined but there are other reports is they have been reassigned and any are coming behalf off leave, right back to work, so this could be something unless and un
people need to understand that the republicans put us in this situation, because when bill clinton left office, he left with a surplus. the republicans spent all the money. we went into recession. then president obama came on scene, and he brought us out of the recession, and it takes money to get out of recession. now they are trying to blame him for all of the spending. mitch mcconnell, he is a disgrace to the senate floor. he said he one of the president to be a one-term president. the people voted obama back in. host: the minority leader, mitch mcconnell, has been negotiating with the vice president joe biden to come to some sort of agreement. what you make of that? caller: i'm talking about what mitch mcconnell said in the beginning. he did not want to work with this president. the want it to see him fail. they're hurting the american people by not helping obama. obama is good for the country, but people that listen to rush limbaugh, sarah palin, and fox news, that is why this country is going down like this. host: let me get your thoughts on president obama as a negotiator. what d
. >> secretary of state hillary clinton remains hospitalized in new york city this hour with a blood clot which her office says stemmed from the concussion she sustained several weeks ago. clinton will be evaluated over the next 48 hours and is taking blood thinners to reduce the close, the location of which has not been revealed. her hospitalization is likely to further delay her testimony before congress on the benghazi attack, a key demand of senate republicans. today a new senate report on benghazi heaped more blame on the state department's security procedures. president obama acknowledged lapsed that the white house would take immediate steps to resolve. he rejected criticism that he would let his u.n. ambassador twisting in the wind, susan rice, instead of training fire on republicans. >> information a politically motivated attack on her. she probably had the least to do with the attack on benghazi. why she was targeted individually for the kind of attacks that she was subjected to is -- it was puzzling to me. >> the process also seems to be playing out with one of obama's top picks to l
clinton is returning after three weeks from recovering from a virus. now she is set to testify on the terror attack in libya that left four americans dead. the question that she will face when she goes to the hill. we'll talk about it.

is in this measure. tax increase or taxes to -- would go back to the clinton levels for people who make $400,000 a year, or households that make $450,000 a year. and there would be an extension of unemployment benefits for some 2 million americans. we would see an increase in the estate tax, but not an absolute increase to what it was going to be. and they're still working out whether or not there will be a delay in these jump -- these big spending cuts. now, this is -- a lot of this is a big democratic win and the reason we're seeing such a democratic win is because they do need so many democratic votes. especially in the house of representatives, for this to succeed. there are spending cuts in this that would still be included in order to get republicans on their -- on the team. and that hasn't been detailed. why? because it was the president talking to democrats. we have to hear from the republican side, joe, to get the republican spin on what is in the package. there is a lot more to talk about from the president's perspective, a lot of people are asking me who is behind him, but i'll le

gears and, jimmy, let me play you a mash up of some of the comments made about secretary clinton. >> i'm not a doctor, but it seems as though that the secretary of state has come down with a case of benghazi flu. >> this is a diplomatic illness to beat the band. >> charles, you had a good line, hillary has severe benghazi allergy. >> i have been doing a lot of work on that. that's the first reported case and it's a very, very severe one. >> very, very severe. let's see the medical report on that. >> unbelievable. now we know she is in the hospital spending new year's eve because of a blood clot that was discovered during routine short of checkup after her concussion. so, you know, john bolton called it a diplomatic illness. alan west, my favorite outgoing member of congress, called it benghazi flu. so should we hold our breath awaiting an apology from these two characters? >> one would think. this is, after all, the former first lady of the united states. this is, after all, the former united states senator from the state of new york. this is, after all, the sitting secretary of state,
. especially secretary clinton is traveling right now, so there were late developments and early developments as well. so i'm there til 10 or 11. >> wow. >> and, you know, i can go out and get something to eat and come back. >> so for the two people in america that don't know andrea mitchell -- [laughter] i want to introduce her. of she's nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent. she has her own show on nbc, he covers foreign policy, intelligence and national security for the network. she's one of the most respected and hardest working journalists in america, and we're delighted that she's here. >> thank you for that. >> and next to her is shirley ann jackson, she's the president of polytechnical institute and the very first african-american woman to run a top research or university. among the many, many firsts, she has 51 honorary degrees, she's been the first of everything, ran the national science foundation, she was the -- >> nuclear regulatory commission. >> nuclear regulatory commission. and she was the very first black woman to get a ph.d. at mit. amazing.

the government, bush increase the government, clinton increased the government, obama increased the government. we have more -- host: what you think will happen in the house? caller: they need to not go on holiday. they need to take the measure. and when can at the american public participate in this process? we cannot. they give us one day to read the bill. there is no way that our people can participate in the process. we want to talk about increases in revenue. i understand that, but you have to have some kind of comeback and i do not been there needs to be some increase in spending. our defense spending is outrageous. our foreign aid to countries is outrageous. we prop up dictators. we are allies with al qaeda what we want to beat the soviet union, but then enemies with them when we want to be in afghanistan. it does have to do with entitlements, but also big government is working with big corporations prepare until the republicans want to get over the industrial military complex and democrats want to -- host: if you are interested in following along on this debate, there are several links
new year. >>> when we come back, the latest on secretary of state hillary clinton's condition. we just learned doctors found that blood clot in the space between her brain and the skull, behind her right ear. doctors say it did not result in a stroke but nbc news' robert bazell will be here with us. you're watching msnbc, the place for politics.

enacted under president clinton. now we all voted, at least all the democrats here, that were here then voted for the clinton tax bill in 1993. we heard all kinds of talk from the other side of the aisle how this is going to be disastrous, it was going to kill the economy. it was just going to be awful. and not one republican supported it. but we passed it. president clinton signed it into law, and guess what happened? the economy took off. unemployment came down. the economy started going. and we were paying down the deficit. we had three straight years or four of surpluses. c.b.o. said if we continued on that way, we would pay off the national debt by 2010. well, then george bush came into office, they looked at all the surpluses out there and said guess what? we've got to take some of that and give it back in tax cuts, and that's what they did. now that's what's ending tonight. that's what ends tonight, are those bush tax cuts. so we go back to the tax system that we had under bill clinton. i ask, what's so bad about that? it worked pretty darned well. the economy was going well
christopher, 20 years ago under bill clinton. that doesn't wash. it had nothing to do with her gender, and it had nothing to do with her race. it had to do with as to whether or not she could survive a senate confirmation process because of answers that she gave like that. the quote that quite possibly got the most replays over the past year came from one of the president's campaign stops over the summer. >> if you have a business, you didn't build that. somebody else made that happen. >> that's what it was, somebody else made that p that. i notice everywhere he went after he made that comment some small business owner would come up to me and the comment would be "i want you to know. i did build it." in fact that comment sparked outrage from small business owners all over the nation. including this message from a gentleman i met in georgia, a lumber yard owner. he put it pretty bluntly. he said this, "i built this business without government help, and you can kiss my -- well you get the picture here what ray was saying. it is pretty evident that that uh febded a lot of -- that offende
clinton. now professor of public policy at uc berkeley and author of "beyond outrage." i don't know how far beyond outrage you can get than this, mr. reich. can there be little doubt that this will go down as one of the most obstructive congresses ever, including what we're going through right now, which is more than ludicrous, is just ridiculous. >> one has to look very far into history to find a congress that is at least as unproductive, as sort of paralyzed as this congress. i would say, basically, back to the 1940s. harry truman had a congress that he accused as being a do-nothing congress. well, the 112th congress just ending is probably worse. >> and that's searching through history with a keen eye. let's not forget last year's debt ceiling debacle, which president obama has vowed never to repeat. >> if congress in any way suggests that they're going to tie negotiations to debt ceiling votes and take us to the brink of default once again as part of a budget negotiation, which, by the way, we have never done in our history, until we did it last year, i will not play that game. >> w
and lower middle class people. so, if everybody says let's go back to the clinton tax rates, that is the clinton tax rates. also, on more spending, the iraq war, we pulled the people out. on c-span about two months ago i turned it on a senate armed services committee. one not seen anybody report this. the state department sent in private contractors at a cost greater than if we would've had our troops in there. it is a fact right now, the figures don't lie, but liars figure. host: thanks for the call. guest: the president's proposal to roll back the bush tax rates for upper-income americans would raise probably about $100 billion a year. that includes higher tax rates on income earned over $250,000, higher estate taxes, and more. it's not going to solve our deficit problem, but it will have an impact. the question is, is that enough, too much, too little, when you combine it with spending cuts, to reduce the deficit to more stable level over the years? host: what we have seen in these negotiations between the principals, how does that portend in terms of what we will see in
'll recap what those are. a higher clinton era top rate of 39.6% for individuals above $400,000 income, couples above $450,000 income. capital gains and dividend rates going from 15% to 20% for people in the top income brackets. you've got an estate tax that goes from 35% to 40% for estates valued at over $5 million. you've got a phaseout of deductions and tax credits at incomes above $250,000 for individuals, $300,000 for couples. that is a concession for the president. and our colleague steve leisman has been also doing reporting on this. he just spoke to me by phone as i was preparing to go on with a source familiar with the talks who noted a wind energy tax credit is preserved as the president eluded to in his remarks. also depreciation for businesses with spending money on new equipment. all of those things arement wills of the tax deal, but until they get the sequester, the budget elements worked out, the deal's not going to be finished. >> now, the deduction phaseout. this is relatively new. any idea at this point which deductions we're talking about and any timetable for them?
to measure. bill clinton signed in my nutrition bill for school breakfasts, to bring breakfasts to elementary schools, all kids, not just poor children. it was a study to prove that -- to prove something we know absolutely but it had to get proven scientistically. children who come to school with a full stomach or fed at school do way better in their studies and in their attendance and in their attitude and we proved it without a doubt. after three years, it because great study and it is there on the shelf but we can't afford to do anything about it. we're not going to see every elementary student -- kids eat at home but they eat pop tarts, elementary children. my kids eat breakfast. but we have to feed our children so they can think. >> 20 years ago when you first came to congress, you became known as the former welfare recipient who is now a member of congress. first of all, tell us, remind us why you were on welfare for a while. what do you think of that? >> well, i was on welfare because when my children were 1, 3, 5 years old, their father was diagnosed manic depressant and he would not
's all bill clinton's be fivefold, and starting in the 1990's, moderate republicans began leaving the party in large numbers and places like the counties around philadelphia, said the john heinz republicans are not republicans any more and you have created an entirely different electorate to witness what happened in delaware or indiana. i will leave that there and somebody can comment. thank you. >> thank you. first of all -- [laughter] one is from robert kelley that is a student at the american university, and he says if there is a systemic problem what changes to the panel's feel are the most he is a self-described aspiring policy analyst and the voters getting what they deserve and what are they going to wait on? >> they look at the politicians, no great shakes. >> welcome first there are systemic problems and have this book is about what not to do. this is not something that is going to be solved by tinkering with the institutions or even the institutional set up. xu some degree it is a cultural problem and that is the tribal politics. and it's also built into a broad media sy
